Settlers arc coming in pretty fast,
Ql!P III' tiYP people who lately wished
to pre-empt land in Kettle river have
had their applications refused, on account of sonic wild cat mineral claim
having been located n" Oin section.
This has caused a good deal of dissatisfaction among those who believe t\\\\l
there is quite enough difficulty iu
locating settlers already, what wit(i
land monopoly antl general lack of information. This is, however, no fault
of local officials, who are acting under
instructions from Mr. Gore, Dep. Com.
Lands and Works. As a mineral
claim is now a small ranch in itself,
under Ihis system which does not permit of the land being pre-empted, two
or three claims, though they do not
carry surface rights, arc as good ns a
pre-emption. A man should be given
some means of legally acquiring a title
to land suitable for settlement, even
though veins of mineral do run through
it. As things are at, present it evidently cannot be pre-empted, and Ihe
miner can acquire no rights to surface,
This matter needs looking into, as
there are dozens of pre-emptions already located, with veins running
through I hem. Every place cannot be

To the editor of The Advance :
Sin—An Sir. Vernon, when down our

least; sonic change should be made at
once in the location of the recorder's
office, a ffiW words on the subject, from
an unprejudiced resident and froa

plain. 1 hear that the intent ion is tq

This appears to me to be a mistake for
Ihu following reasons. There would
then be t.be same difficulty in the three
offices that exists at present in thu
Kettle river office, i. e., that the re'
corder is at times obliged by oilier
duties to be absent. If an office is
opened at Camp iMcKinnuy or maim

its, either while absent as collector op
to be in the office during the recorder's
absence. My objection Ul putting
Camp McKinney into the Osoyoos mining division is thai it, is in tlie Kettle
river watershed. A miller can follow
a walerihcd, bul not an imaginary

the matters of temperature, ripening of
Iho cream, churning and scrupulous

-often invisible clouds, owing to tho
icinidarkncss of tlie cattle stalls—whenever the process of milking occurs? How
many fanners thoroughly brush the

pail with every movement of Iho hands.
What does it mean when "settlings" aro

the milk has frequently what is errone-

ltnpy Cream.
Ropy cream is a fermentation produced by the growth of certain malov-
olrait bacteria which obtain access to
llio'i'nilk ftiidcroain after milking, Tho
Itijiso ir, net caused by conditions of
feeding, felt by tlio action of infinitesimal living arganisms that get into the
milk and there tbrivo and growuritil
they bring about this peculiar chemical
change in the fluid that is commonly designated lis "ropiness or stringincss,"
In all probability tho truuble lies in
the fact that tbo vessels in which the
milk is placed, cither during tlio milking
or subsequently, are infected with these
organisms, Ordinary cleaning will not
FUtlice to rid tho vessels of these germs,
und the disense is transmitted from time
to time in this way, Thorough sterilization of the vessels, oitherby baking nt
least an hour in a hot oven or steaming
in boiling steam from one to two hours,
will effectually destroy this bacterial
germ. Immediate cooling of the mill;
in ice water and scrupulous cleanliness
in handling it at all subsequent times
will prevent the growth and multiplication of these germs,

'Ti ii ■ Mil.   GRAHAM'S ADDRESS,
-—* ■    M_^
The First Encounter of the Two Candidates
Takes JUsce s.t fairview,
(CoutinueoJ fro.m lost week.)
The parliament. fcujMi.iigs was the
first matter touched .upon by Mr. Gra-
Iniin.iuid in this i/o .aaiil he was much
opposed to the government,   $000,000
had been voted for the purpose but
this did not represent tlio amount the
people would be called upon to pay.
Here he quoted from Mr.Browns speech
.delivered at Westminster,   showing
,that,the cost of plans and preparatory
•work, the discount on the loan, and
the contract for heating and lighting,
to say nothing of furnishing the same,
Jiad not been taken into consideration.
It would be amusing, he said, to turn
hack over the pages of the World and
note the criticism of this paper on the
/subject  "before it had fallen from
grace" in which it declined that 50 or
100 per cent would have to he added to
;the sum asked for before tho actual
<cost,of construction cf these buildings
fvoyld. be covered.   Also in its opinion
(the country at the present time could
well do without such buildings, citing
Manitoba with a much larger population, carrying on its government in a
■court house, and Ontario with a largo
«urplus of money in her   treasury,
which    was    well    satisfied   with
feujlijiugs   that   cost  that   province
76 cent per head of population, whereas
here, Mr. Graham said, the total population were to be taxed $10 per head,
pr allowing 80,000 whites, these would
be taxed $15 per head, or estimating
,the total number of electors at 17,000
and deducting 5,000 who are not property owners a total of 12,000 remains.
These would be called upon to pay the
handsome sum of $80 per head, which
jlet out at 4 per cent interest would he
equivalent to the present provincial
revenue tax.   Thus it would be seen,,
that the saddling of this debt upon the
people at the present time, just when
the resources of the province will be
taxed to their utmost to furnish roads,
bridges etc., and repair somewhat the
damage done by the flood was nothing
moreor less than a crime, (applause) It
fvasclaimedby the supporters of the government that this had once and for all
settled the vexed question of the location of the capital of the province,
that it smoothed the way for the passing of the redistribution  bill, and
that the buildings will be a great attraction to tourists visiting tlie province
but whether this gave satisfaction to
jthe electors and no cause for complaint
f enjajtys, would be clearly demonstrated
at the pplls in the coming election,
/applause.)
Mr. Graharfl thep took up and discussed the railway policy of the government, nnd poiijtoil ool that it was
^understood interest would he guaranteed ou the bonds of the S. k O. Ry, up
po the actual cost of  construction,
Whereas they had been guaranteed up
to the full amount of $25,000 per mile,
and in this respect he would wish to
draw a comparison betw.eei) the S.4,0,
and the N.&S. The one built through a
pouutry presenting few obstacles to
construction ; in fact what you might
term a prairie road, and the other
through a rough country, difficult of
access. On the one hand bonds guaranteed up to $25,000 per mile and the
other $17,500.   Referring to tlie Nakusp
fand Slocan he wished to point out that
if it wns good policy, which he denied,
po guarantee principal and interest on
a road, then why not In the name of
jCoromon sens,e build and own the road
outright. ,(hear. hear.) To say the least
,the railway policy of the government
was creating a great amount of distrust
p the minds of the people, and the
Royal Commissi!)!) had not had the
effect of allaying thje 8am£,   With regard to the Commission it was only
another instance  of   money   being
squandered, as it was not to he supposed the government,drawlng up their
pwn indictment, would leave any loop
hole upon which they might be convicted. The same thing happened in
the time of the Walkem government,
but then two wrongs do not make a
right.
Continuing Mr. Graham cald he wished to draw attontion to the Canada
Western scheme, gotten up purely in
the interest of Victoria, which the
people may be called upon to assist,
hot only by giving land to the extent
pf 20,000 acres per mile, wjth exemption
from trxtttion, hut also to guarantee
jnterest at the rate of 4 per cent on
$0,000,000, and then contrast it with
the policy adopted jn regard to a railway, which, would havo affected the
welfare and prosperity of .this section
pf country; the foad proposed to be
built by Mr, Sorbin, froni Marcus to
Penticton, a road for which a charter
only was requested and refused, at:
.thoguh no assistance cither by land
grant or guarantee of bonds wa$ ex:
pected,
1 He then took up the Redistribution,
bill which he siijd the govornmijiit
were so extremely proud of, and which
they were continually quoting, ft did
not after all give a gq'qd'representatioi!',
He would point put the fact that as
Esquimalt, Cowi.chan, Lilloqe.t, and.
Cariboo were pocket bqroughs, they
were given a greater representation
than they deBerve. Lillnqpt witli only
285 electors was represented by two
members', While the Yale district with
1800 voters, was accorded only three
members, and this riding with 800 has
pnly one member.   This then will show
distribution.
Touching tlie conversion of bonds,
Mr, Graham could not see that this
reflected credit on the government or
the Finance Minister,   Taking for instance tlie conversion nt the $760,000
0 per cents, $110 worth of 'J per cents
had to be given for every $100 of (i per
cents.   This $110 at 3 per cent, was
equivalent to $1.20 per annum, or for
15 years $011, whicli added to the $110
gives $203 to the bond holders, a profit
of $13 on every hundred, or $97,500 on
the $750,000 converted.   Under these
circumstances the loan, having only
fifteen years longer to run, should have
been allowed to expire, - At the end of
fifteen ywus, according to the statement of the government, money could
be borrowed at such rates, that interest
would be paid at the rate of 3 per cent
on say $107 if a new loan were floated,
but 3 per cent will instead be paid on
$140 the cost of conversion, adilfcrcnce
of $33 per hundred against the province
or of $217,000 on the whole amount converted, whicli amount, at 3 per cent interest for 35 years, gives $250,000. This
added to the principal gave over $500,-
000 against the province, less the sinking fund released.
The next subject that occupied Mr.
Graham's attention was tbo wild lands
of the province, and in this he stated
he felt that tho blame to agreatextent
lay with the department over which
the 0. C. of L, W. presided, and not
witli the land laws.   The lack of Information in government offices with regard to vacant land was simply astounding.   All over the U.S. A., asalso
in Manitoba nod the Northwest, and
other parts pf Canada, an intending
settler has po difficulty in finding all
the necessary information in tlie land
offices with regard to vacant  land.
When  these lands  were surveyed
notes were taken describing each J section. ,*nd these notes are used as reference in the land offices, and   again
when land is pre-empted it is marked,
so that at a glance it may bo seen what
lands are occupied and what vacant.
If settlement was a desirable thing,
nothing would give more encouragement to it than for the intending settler to be able to obtain, reliable Information at short notice in the different
offices ralatif)g to vacant land. (hear.
hear.)
Before resuming his seat the speaker
referred to a rumour that (jail been set
on foot by someone having no regard
for truth,which was no doubt intended
to do him much harm. It was slated he
wished to cut down the wages of the
labouring man.   He would say that in
the municipality of which he is reeve
the same rate of wages is paid as in
others.   Although he favoured a policy
of retrenchment, he wished it to be understood distinctly he did not favour a
policy of retrogression.   He was distinctly progressive butnot extravagant,
and if elected would work   for  the
benefit of the province and the good of
the pf the people at large, (applause,)
In reply to Mr, Graham, the Hon. F.
G. Vernpn reminded his hearers that,
as this tyas not bis own meeting, he
would be obliged to answer the questions raised by Mr.. Graham in as few
words as possible.   His answers would
be in tlie concrete, and tor a more abstract reply to tho many questions
raised, he referred them to his former
speeches, especially the one delivered
here a few days ago at the Rlue House.
The first niattei touched upon by
Mr. Graham, he said, was the parliament buildings,  in connection  with
which he had taken occasion to cite
Mr. Brown.    Now if Mr. Graham took
for granted as true all the statements
made by this gentleman, ho would be
continually falling into error.
He, Mr. V„ had given a full account
of everything in connection with the
buildings, and would only say that the
heating and lighting portion of the
contract as referred to by Mr. Graham
was included in the $000,000. This, as
he had said before, was the contract
price of the buildings, including everything, and for this sum the electors
could rest assured the work would be
carried tp completion. There had boen
aj/ first, a great deal of opposition manifested throughout the province toward the buildings, and Westinitister
was the hot hud of tin) outcry against
the government, but now everywhere
people were perfectly satisfied, On
the railway policy of the government, ho was afraid Mr. Graham's Intellect was a little clouded.
Apparently ho could not grasp
the question, but this, he supposed,
could not be wondered at. Mr.
Graham was a very estimable man in
his own, line of life, but he was afraid
he was not a political), A man could
not understand anything about practical politics who receives all his education from the newspapers.
The S, k 0. had been built on the urgent solicitation of tlie people of Okanagan. It had had the effect of opening
the, country to settlement, and had enhanced the value of lan/ls. In its immediate, neighbourhood, Mr. Graham's
among the rest. Before and while this
rqad yeas being lllP't all the people
lyi-.iie strong supporters of the government, but as, jioqn as their wishes were
gr4t.jh.ed they (pre among t|ie first to
typn (iii(| wish tp put the throats of
tljqiii jieiififactors, which, to say the
]tjnsl( 5Yf|S vpray ungrateful, (applause),
Qn a matter in connection with this
railway Mr, Rahbitt bases his reasons
for being found in the opposition ranks,
stating Hint he (Mr. V.) made a prom
that there is yet plenty of room for rc-| ise to hiin in Kamloops, pledging him
self to support tho undertaking only
on condition that the bonds were guaranteed by the government up to the
amount of the actual cost of construction, He thought in this matter Mr.
Rabbitt was mistaken, as he did not
remember ever having given that
gentleman any such promise. In fact
lie was sure be did not do so.
Great pressure was brought to bear
upon the government, to render assistance to the N, & S. railway. The construction of this road was an actual
necessity, as we could not afford to
have the ores of that section carried
into the Slates, Tlie promoters of tbe
scheme deserved all the assistance they
received from the government, for
their enterprise in financing and building the road and leasing il to tlie C. P.
H. After citing the reasons for the
Royal Commission in connection with
this railway, and its result, and explaining tlie matter nf the Three
Forks townsitc, Mr. Vernon touched
upon the Canada Western, and on this
subject he said he had very little to
say, further than that the government
had guaranteed the promoters 20,000
acres of land per mile, No ot her prop'
osition hatl been brought before the
government in connection with this
undertaking, in any way shape or
form, but if any further assistance is
asked in the future, the electors might
depend upon it, it would not be kept
in the dam.
Referring to tlio refusal to grant a
charter to Mr. Corbin lo build a road
in from the south to Penticton, Mr.
Vernon reminded his bearers that to
blame the government for this was altogether wrong. All bills of this kind
were referred to the private bills committee, whose duty it was to consider
and accept or reject, any or all tbo different measures presented to them.
The committee dealt with tlie char-
tor.and 1 lie government wilh the assistance, if any was given. He could not
say what, were the reasons for tlie rejection of this particular charter. He
would point out to them Ilia tit charter
had been granted to tlie N. and F. S,
railway running into tlie Slates, why
not the Corbin road?. But this was a ;
matter for the committee and not for
the government,
The Redistribution Bill, he said, was
a measure that had drawn praise from
some of the stattnehest sopporters of
the Opposition, and was one of which
the government had every reason to
be proud, (hear, hear.)  Tlie financial
standing of the province, tlie  conversion of bonds etc., was a subject requiring much time to explain,   For information on these matters he would
refer them to the reports of tbe Finance Minister, It was quite apparent,
Mr. Vernon said, that Mr. Graham had
not sufficiently studied this question
as would be seen by the figures given
re the conversion of bonds.    The government had borrowed money and  as
long as the country required and they
could borrow at a low rate of interest,
they would continue to do so,   Iu reply to Mr. Graham's statement touching Wild Lands, Mr, Vernon said it
was the wish of  the government to
furnish all the information   possible
to intending  settlers,   Years  ago a
complete survey of lands in tlio Frazer
river district had been made, but the
C.P.R. came along and absorbed these
The outlying  districts wcro  being
surveyed as fast as the means of  the
govprnniontwill allow, and under the
present system all the necessary information would soon bo found in district offices.   Mr.  Vernon  explained
that the rumour set on foot about Mr.
Graham wishing to cut down wages
had not originated with himself.   1 le
wished the people to vote in tlie   coming election and decide it on tlie knowledge they had of his past actions, and
those of the government, and if elected
he would do his duty as he had always
done, (applause.)
Mr. Graham, in reply, said the only
construction to lie placed upon Mr,
Vernon's words re the borrowing of
money, wns that, ns long as they could
gel, it cheaply, tho Government would
keep   borrowing,   regardless   of   tbe
amount,   Mr.  Vernon  claimed   tlio
promoters of the Nakusp and Slocan
should have the road as a result of
their enterprise in putting the same on
the market and  routing  it  to Iho
C, P, 11., whereas Davie claimed distinctly, in his speech, that he person-
sonally  conducted  Ihe   whole  transaction.   (Extracts read from speech in
confirmation of same by Mr. Graham).
It was strange, be said, thai I bo representative of this district, knew so little
of a question of such vital Importance
to this section as lie claims to know
about   tho   Oqrbjn   railway   charter
No wonder the people of Westmin
ster are satisfied with the parliament
buildings.   $200,000had been voted toward the bridge over tbe. Frazer, as a
direct offset tq the former. (Hear bear. ]
Mr. Rabbitt then addressed the meeting and slated that, the promise re the
S. and 0. bonds had been made  privately by Mr. Vei'ipm to him, notwithstanding Mr. Vernon disclaimed any
knowledge of tho same.   If the bonds
of that road had only been guaranteed
up lo tho amount of the cost of construction, we should see a vory different state of affairs to-day. Thetrafflcof
the road would pay more than one per
cent, and the road would be their pride
instead of their disgrace, as at, present.
After  other  remarks,   Mr.   Rabbitt
quoted the following figures touching
the finances of the Province, lo prove
| that they had been badly managed,

This, you will notice, is only an average of $711,(100 per year more than was
spent in public works on an average
for five years previous to 1801, anil,
therefore, since 1801 we have had expanded on public works, in excess of
tlie average for previous years, altogether $228,000.   This, it will be noticed, is $200,000 short of the special
ainounls just referred to, not to speak
of tho   $1,000,000   borrowedi'iir  pub
iniprovcmcnts,   not   one   dollar
which,   therefore, can have gone
to    tho    purposes    for    which    it
was   raised.     Yet    we    have   only
$1)0,000 ill   the  treasury,   llie.v  does
the  Government account   for   this
slate of affairs?   The only thing we
are certain of is the'increase in salaries, which. werel888-7,$130,000; 1892-3,
$210,000; estimate for 1893-1, $272,000.
II was quite evident, Mr, Rabbittsaid,
that, by the poo pooing of the Government representative, these figures were
rather distasteful, but some  day the
count ry would be called upon to set*
tie many a vexed quest ion without any
poo pooing,   He had taken up a sufficient amount of their time, and would
thank them for the attention given
him,   (Applause.)
A vote of thanks being accorded Ihe
chairman for his services, and to Mr.
Morris for the use of his house, the
meeting adjourned.

White Valley Notes,
(From our own corroapondOfy!,)
White Valley, Juno li.—While
chopping nut sonic trees thrown across
Ihe road by the storm, Tommy Christian received a severe cut on the el-
how from the axo of a follow workman,
The cut. is a very dangerous one, but
wo trust Ihe use of the arm has not
been destroyed,
Jumping and'foot-racing now draws
quite n crowd lo Lumby every evening.
This looks as if the boys were beginning to tnko mnro interest in athletic
sports, and we hope such is the case.
A fool hall club is being formed, whicli,
we believe, will before long he able to
make it interesting for any team in
this part of Ii. C.
Tlie school attendance has increased
so rapidly that the sohoolhouso no
longer seats all the pupils, and another
school in .this valley will soon bo not
only needed, |iii| necessary.
Crops in While Valley are looking
splendid. Mr. Peter Bissette's Held of
spring wheat, behind the school, attracts special notice.
Tho sawmill is now running full
blast, under Ibe management of Mcll-
vnineand Ellis, and lai'iihor is beiiig
teamed daily to Long Lake and Vernon
Li'iiiihy is soon In boast of a couple of
sidewalks. These are much needed,
and the sooner laid tlie better. We
understand, also, that a town hall is no
longer a thing of the dim future..

Osoyoos Notes
(From our own oorroBpondent,!
Osoyoos, Juno 18.—A licensing court
for the southern portion of the Osoyoos
Division of Yalo District was held at
Osoyoos ou the Jfjth June, The following justices constituted the hoard:
0. A. R, Lanibly, chairman, It. L,
Oiiuston, 11. (I. Sidley, E. D. Reynolds,
Win. G. Macmynn and P. T, McCallum.
Certificates to obtain a license were
applied for by Mr. Hrgii (,anieri,:i for
bis premises at Camp McKinney, Mr.
Mauley for his new hotel at Grand
Forks, Mr. Valentino Haynes for the
Hyndford Hotel, Osoyoos. All of the
applications worn granted and permission was also granted to Mr. McAuley
to move into more commodious quart
ers ut Midway.
Mr. Fred. Billings, of Vernon, appealed oh behalf of Mia Haynes, and
Mia H'pury Nicholson introduced Mr.
Hugh Caniorrn and Mr. Mauley.
Ah Shu and Ah Leon, two 'Chinamen from Hock Creek, were brought
inert" Iho Osoyoos lock-up on Tuesday, I:li ii June, by Mr. Macmynn, on a
charge ol supplying liquor to Indians at
Rock Creek, on the night of June 7th,
They wore brought, before Mr, 0, A. R.
Lamlily, who remanded them until
Friday, when they were brought he-
fore Messrs. R. G. Sidley, C. A. R.
Lamlily, E. D, Reynolds and P. J. Mc-
CiUuin. Mr, Billings appeared for the
lU'oseritlion, and the prisoners were defended by Mr. Nicholson, This case
excited a good deal of interest aud
besides it heated argument by counsel
for cither side as to Uio advisability of
the statement of another Chinaman,
All Loon, taken before two justices
and signed by the prisoner, Ah Leon,
as evidence against Ui SMe, there was
a lively diseiissioli as to Whether, after
counsel had finished their addresses
and closed the case, it was legal to
allow the prisoner to bosw iii;;nt',give,'
evidence in his ovra leliiur. In support of ids claim that this could not he
dniie, Mr. Billings quoted authorities,
hut their worships finally overruled his
contention. However, as a niatler of
